This film was released in January of 1942, so the action tales place in 1941. The shipping tag on the large trunk shows the sailing date to Honolulu as Saturday, December 6th, which was the day before the bombing of Pearl Harbor (which also is in Hawaii).

Although this film was made long before product placement became prevalent in films, the Del-Monte logo is shown on crates in the hold of the ship.

Other product placements in this film are cartons of Chesterfield cigarettes and a sign for Challenge ice cream.
